Die Musiksammlung der ZLB ist mit ihrem Bestand von ca. 270.000 Medieneinheiten eine der größten Öffentlichen Musikbibliotheken Deutschlands. Schon ihre Vorläufereinrichtungen, die Musikabteilungen der Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek und der Berliner Stadtbibliothek, waren für eine vielfältige Öffentlichkeitsarbeit bekannt, eine Tradition, die seit der Fusion zur ZLB fortgeführt wurde. Der Artikel portraitiert die Musikbibliothek der ZLB und stellt aktuelle Beispiele ihrer Öffentlichkeitsarbeit vor, bei denen Kooperationen im Vordergrund stehen. The ZLB's musical collection is one of the largest public music libraries in Germany, considering its collections of about 270,000 media units. Already its predecessors, the music departments of the American Memorial Library and of the Berliner Stadtbibliothek (Berlin city library), were known for their public relations work, a tradition kept up since they were merged to form the ZLB. The article portrays the ZLB's music library and presents current examples of its public relation work focussing on co-operations.
